Scarborough Rips Trump for Crying ‘Witch Hunt’ Over Cohen Raid: ‘These Are Republicans’ You Appointed!

As President Donald Trump continues to slam the FBI’s “witch hunt” for their raid on Michael Cohen‘s office, Joe Scarborough is not impressed with him chalking it all up as a conspiracy against him.

As Morning Joe reviewed the “very bad news” for the president yesterday, Scarborough noted that Robert Mueller, Rod Rosenstein, Jeff Sessions, and many other officials connected to the Russia special counsel are members of the Republican Party. Scarborough pointed out that Trump appointed the current head of the FBI, as well as the U.S. district attorney for New York who approved the warrant federal agents used yesterday to investigate Cohen.

“Everybody that I named on that list, has never been Democrats,” Scarborough said. “They have never contributed hundreds and hundreds of thousands of dollars to Democratic campaigns like Donald Trump…These are Republicans! Most of these players that Donald Trump is attacking were appointed by Donald Trump!”

Scarborough concluded that even though these federal investigators are members of Trump’s political party, the president is incapable of understanding Republicans who “put their country and they put the rule of law above Donald Trump”
